Ploughman's Lunches are served in the Luncheon Car departing on the 13.30 steam hauled service from Chinnor station on Sunday 23 September 2018. Come along in any sort of hat - stylish, quirky, or whatever you choose... and then TRAVEL HALF-PRICE! Our volunteer staff will be delighted to serve you a traditional and freshly prepared rural Cheddar and Ham Ploughman's Lunch, together with your choice of tea / coffee, or soft drink. Local Chinnor Railway Ales can also be served at an additional charge. Sit back, relax and watch the steam lazily curl past your Luncheon Car window, as the lovely views gradually open out to reveal the Vale of Aylesbury and Whiteleaf Cross in the distance.



Available only on the 13.30 departure from Chinnor.

When you book online the combined cost includes your HALF PRICE TRAVEL (don't forget your hat please!), seat reservations and Ploughman's Lunch.
